What do you recommend as the best CrazyOne - I have been using tightvnc for ages but it could be time to change to improved software.
I like tightvnc because its easy to install remotely and the port can configured.

Dameware is good. You can install the service remotely & remove it once you're done. Leaves no trace :), except in the event log of course, but that can be cleared as well. Nasty...

The other features of Dameware are good too from an administrative point of view. Have a look at it.

emilbus20,

Thanks for the points.

It's EE policy to accept the first answer that solves your problem, so by right, CrazyOne's comment should get accepted. I was just elaborating on a product which I've used before. You can post a request at http://www.experts-exchange.com/Community_Support/ to split the points. Thanks.
